Babar made his international debut under the captaincy of Misbah-ul-Haq in 2015. He has since gone on to become one of the finest batsmen in world cricket and was appointed as Pakistan’s all-format captain last year, under the management of Misbah-ul-Haq.

The left-arm pacer, Rumman Raees, expressed his disappointment on not being able to play Test cricket under the leadership of Misbah-ul-Haq, although he had the pleasure of winning the first PSL title under his captaincy. He added that Misbah is one of the finest cricket captains in Test cricket history.
I was lucky enough to play and win a PSL title under your leadership, but I confess that one of the biggest regrets of my life is not being able to play under your leadership in red ball Cricket, surely one of the best minds of the format & game!

آپ عظیم کپتان اس لئیے ہیں کہ آپ نے مُلک کا سودا نہیں کرتے۔ اور مشکل وقت میں قیادت کی ۔
